Bitterwallet - HP Touchpad Hot UK Deals

WARNING: It transpires that the information in this story relates only to the USA. Sorry non-USA readers. WARNING ENDS.

If you’re still licking your wounds at having missed out on a cut-price HP TouchPad last week, there’s still some hope for you. That’s because HP have announced there’ll be one last batch of the tablets released into the market soon, presumably fashioned from bits of components that they’ve still got lying around the place.

"The speed at which [the TouchPad] disappeared from inventory has been stunning," says Mark Budgell, of HP's PR team,. "We have decided to produce one last run of TouchPads to meet unfulfilled demand. We don't know exactly when these units will be available or how many we'll get, and we can't promise we'll have enough for everyone. We do know that it will be at least a few weeks before you can purchase."

HP have said that none of the tablets will be available through their business sales network, leading us to believe that another mass retail bunfight will be occurring sooner or later.

As ever, keep ‘em peeled at Bitterwallet and HotUKDeals for all the info about how to get one of these defunct but cheap gadgets.

    And how many retailers are going to want to stock that and have their site swamped. stick them all on ebay starting at 1p and let the bidding commence

    You must be an idiot to pay some tout £200 for a TouchPad.

    The best thing about the TP episiode is that its made everyone forget about the iPhone 5 for a while!

    Why don't HP resurrect the touchpad but continue to sell it at the discounted rate ? Clearly there is a huge demand - even in the knowledge that the company is to discontinue it it is selling like hotcakes - so if you knew that the company was infact to continue supporting it, it becomes very attractive at the lower price point compared to the ipad.
